The Democratic National Committee is being accused by Republicans of using the terrorism attack in Boston to improve its fundraising solicitation lists.
Disgraceful: @TheDemocrats capitalizing on terrorism and Bostons first responders to boost their fundraising lists, RNC chairman Reince Priebus wrote on Twitter on Monday. Very poor taste.
On Monday, the DNC set up a page for supporters to Thank Bostons First Responders, referencing those who responded to the bombing of the Boston Marathon last week.
The site asks people who want to sign their name to a thank you note from the DNC to submit their name, email address and zip code.
Organizations typically use a tactic like this having people sign their names to cards to collect email addresses so they can later send them fundraising solicitations.
In an email sent Monday, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz asked supporters to sign on to the card.
Whether you want to say thanks, share a story about how the past weeks events have affected you, or just let these public servants know that youve been thinking about them, I know theyd appreciate hearing from you, she said.
DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse explained to The Daily Caller in an email that, Our supporters were looking for an outlet to express their gratitude and support for first responders in the wake of the tragedy in Boston, and collecting messages of thanks to deliver to them we concluded was the best outlet we could give them.
Whats disgraceful is that Republicans would stoop so low as to politicize the simple act of thanking the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to keep us safe, he said.
Ahhhh yes, let me guess - DNC : “sure, this time it was one of us, but next time it could be those TEA PARTY guys! Help us stop them today...”
What’s the DNC doing raising money to support all the good Muslims in the US to make sure they love us and don’t blow up a parade next time? DNC is all on board with these loons.
Something very wrong with that party. Even something more wrong with the people who would give money to such a solicitation.
They’re bolsheviks. Taste has got nothing to do with it. When are you guys going to get it through your thick, RINO skulls that you’re up against full-on bolsheviks.

Yah, right, Woodlouse, as if you need someone’s e-mail address to pass on their message to rescuers.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I wish the RNC were this ruthless, bloodthirsty and actually had THE WILL TO WIN elections.
Oh, nevermind... ;)
